“There is a remarkable legacy for trade shows and art fairs that began at Navy Pier,” stated Laurette Lutiger, newly appointed Managing Partner of the Chicago Show. “Chicago has established itself as a leading arts and cultural city in the Midwest and represents collectors of every age and level of interest who have been waiting for a show of this caliber to emerge.”

In true Palm Beach Show Group fashion, the Chicago International Art, Antique & Jewelry Show will kick off with a private Opening Night Preview Party, Thursday, April 24, offering museum patrons, high profile private collectors and elite attendees a first glimpse of the rare treasures available for purchase.  Guests will be greeted with complimentary champagne and hors d’oeuvres while being charmed by remarkable collections from all corners of the globe. The show will be open to the public for the remaining four days, Friday, April 25 through Monday, April 28.

“Chicago is an established market and the Chicago collector is one of the best in the world, with a proven track record of purchasing from Art, Antique and Jewelry Shows,” concluded Scott Diament, President and CEO of the nationally expanding Palm Beach Show Group. “Our research has shown that we will also pull collectors from Canada, which is experiencing tremendous growth in high net worth individuals. We know this is a great market for dealers.”

Owned and produced by the Palm Beach Show Group, the inaugural Chicago International Art, Antique & Jewelry Show is designed to meet the needs of galleries, antique seekers, art-buyers, interior designers and enthusiasts of all fine things.
